Admission into Charis Classical Academy is a 4-step process. The purpose of our application and interview process is simply to ensure that families align with the vision of CCA and that a solid partnership will be feasible. Each step moves your student closer towards being an enrolled student at our campus. We work hard to ensure our school is the most effective educational environment for all students enrolled. We thoroughly review all new applications and interview new families to make sure we can create the best partnerships possible.
STEP 1: ATTEND AN INFORMATION SESSION
Having exposure to and continuing to grow in knowledge of both classical education and the CCA partnership model is essential for our families to be successful at Charis. Our Info Session is the first step in ensuring that this learning process begins. Prospective families will hear from and interact with our administrators and other experienced Charis parents as they learn about the foundational elements and goals of our program.
STEP 2: SUBMIT A NEW STUDENT APPLICATION
You will need to fill out an application for each student applying. The fee per application is $75 and will be due at the time of application. Please note that the date of application does not guarantee enrollment but does place your student officially into our applicant pool to be considered for admissions. Classes will close as rosters fill up, so early application submissions are advised.
New Student Applications for 2023-2024 school year are now being accepted.
STEP 3: INTERVIEW
In order to determine if the environment and curriculum will be effective for both parties involved, we will interview all CCA families. The applicant and both parents are required to be in attendance, but the whole family is welcome to attend. After your application(s) have been received, we will contact you within 2 weeks to schedule an interview with your family.
STEP 4: Enrollment
CCA will begin making admissions decisions and sending admissions emails in late-March. These decisions will be made on a rolling basis throughout the spring for the grade levels in which we have available seats, and accepted students will then be invited to enroll. Enrollment communicates your desire for your student to attend CCA, reserves his/her seat for the upcoming school year, and includes payment of the annual Individual/Family Enrollment Fee ($200 for individual student / $300 for a family enrolling 2 or more students – increases after June 1st to $250/$350). Placement is not guaranteed until you receive notification of admission and we receive your enrollment fee. Course Registration, curriculum lists, and other instructions will follow in the coming weeks.
**We will go through this process until our campus is at capacity. At that point, we can take applications and place your student(s) on a waitlist.
